The Nike React Presto just released this May, but Nike and its collaborative partners have begun to build off the already-desirable silhouette. This time, they team up with Japanese institution, BEAMS, for a colorway designed to commemorate BEAMS’s 40th anniversary.
The BEAMS x Nike React Presto “Dharma” features a split-upper colorway is inspired by Buddhism. The lateral portion of the shoes features an all-white mesh, with the medial sides bearing shades of orange, red, purple, gren, and blue. The React cushioning also features a pop of orange to complete the overall look. Finally, the shoes feature caricatures of the Buddhist Dharma dolls that inspired the colorway.
This 40th anniversary commemorative colorway is based on Buddhist “Dharma dolls” (which are featured as caricatures on the insole heel). The perfect split between hectic color and pure white on each shoe reminds of the balance necessary to live a content life in the Buddhist religion. The bright orange, red, and purple combined with the clean white of the other side of the shoe make it the perfect summer shoe, as well.
Expect the BEAMS x Nike React Presto “Dharma” to release in-store and online at BEAMS Japan on May 25th. Currently there is no word on the exact price of the shoe. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
